A celebration of all things apple took place Saturday at Derby Reach Regional Park.
A big draw of the annual Heritage Apple Day has always been apple tasting, and the 2013 event was no exception.
Saturday’s festival also featured children’s games, live music, pioneer chores, crafts, and apple pruning demonstrations from arbourists Bill Wilde and Richard Hallman.
Derby Reach and apples are linked in history. Some of the early pioneer homesteads in the area had apple orchards, and a handful of the trees have survived into the modern area.
